Research for Business in Digital Transformation

Our Research, Your Practice

Research is deeply connected to the roots of Vlerick as an academic business school. Our professors and researchers closely cooperate with the business world to directly translate new insights from research to your daily practice. Our Digital Transformation expert team guarantees the scientific basis of the projects we carry out. Practical relevance is another important feature of our research.

Collaboration between our experts and your organisation can happen in a variety of formats: a research partnership in the longer term or shorter projects for ad hoc research, consultancy or coaching. We are bound to have a suitable partnership format that will fit your company like a glove.

We provide answers to questions like: How to align business and IT strategy? How can I implement a digital-first culture in my organisation? Where do I stand as regards digital maturity? As a C-level decision maker or manager, how can I manage my department for digital transformation? Our experts diagnose, map out opportunities, moderate workshops and, together with you develop an action plan.

A Research Partnership that Supports Management Practice

Do you prefer a long term collaboration with Vlerick? A chair is a one-to-one relationship between a faculty member and your organisation. It offers your organisation the possibility to support research within a specific domain. This way your company contributes directly to the growth of a specific management domain.

Do you think your organisation could benefit from our applied research? Within the domain of digital transformation there are several possibilities. To discover how we could be working together we invite you for a conversation on the different options, so do not hesitate to contact us.

In addition to "digital transformation” we have topics such as “Enterprise Architecture”, “Business Analytics”, and “IT Management” on our research agenda.
